I predict Florida tourism will be affected as long as Stand Your Ground laws exist in the state. I would not dream of spending my vacation dollars in a state where I or a family member might be gunned downed legally for walking along a street because some armed paranoid thinks that we are a threat.
I could never relax when having to constantly look over my shoulder in fear that I may inadvertently offend someone by my presence alone. Maybe you should change your state motto to “The Gunshine State.”
